NSA Shivshankar Menon has reportedly said that the Taliban may kidnap Indian diplomats in Afghanistan. The warning has come after his recent trip to Kabul to review the security of Indians.

The looming terror threat to Indians in Afghanistan has led New Delhi to consider advising its citizens who are working in the country to return.

The report says that the Taliban is planning to abduct the diplomats en masse as they consider them soft targets.

Seven Indians were dead following a February 26 blast at a Kabul hotel.
